Angry man

Sometimes I get angry, just, angry. And I think "This is not so good all this anger."

And then I think "But it is all so justified."

And then I think "But it is not so good all this anger. If you were angry at everything that there is to be angry at you would not have enough time to feel anything else."

Then a third part of me thinks "Aha! Perhaps that is the point!"

And then I think "Now I will not be so angry."

Which makes me very mad.

Very mad.

It turns out one has to take care of all the angry stuff down in the roots if one really wants to do anything about it, and it is very hard to get down into the roots. Much digging. Whereas it is pretty easy to go hacking among the branches of anger. Not least because one can do this in a fury.

Sadly it just makes more branches grow.

But you know this. You know everything, which is why it is so nice to write to you.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
